Christmas is only three days away and Nike will be releasing holiday-inspired/themed sneakers for all of their signature athletes. Today we get a closer look at the Nike Kyrie 2 which is inspired by something unexpected.

Kyrie Irving is expected to lace up this colorway of his Kyrie 2 on Christmas Day when the Cavaliers face the Warriors in what should be an entertaining NBA Finals rematch. This Christmas version of the Kyrie 2 is inspired by the Abominable Snowman and features teeth all across the strap inspired by the fictional character. The back half of the shoe is covered in White while the front half features Obsidian and Blue Lagoon. The Kyrie branding on the tongue and outsole is done in a bright red to go along with the Christmas theme. Wrapping things up is a translucent that complements the sleek blue upper.

Get your pair at select Nike retailers beginning December 26th for a retail price of $150.

Author’s Take

Every Christmas we can always expect bright ans unusual colored sneakers to release and this one does exactly that. I do like the Kyrie 2 but I’m not a big fan of this colorway. Also, what’s up with the price increase just because it’s a Christmas colorway?
